The USA International Ballet Competition announced Wednesday that 118 dancers representing 19 countries will compete for gold medals in the 11th USA competition. From 289 submissions, the competition was selected. Three gold medalists from the Moscow International Ballet Competition, and a Grand Prix winner of the Youth America Grand Prix New York finals are among those invited. Over three rounds of classical and contemporary ballet, the competition will be vying for medals, cash awards in excess of $20,000, scholarships, and company contracts during the Jackson festival. In 1979, the IBC was established in Jackson. In 1982, the U.S. Congress designated Jackson as the IBC’s official home. The International Theater Institute of UNESCO sanctioned the IBC in Jackson every four years. It is renowned for its illustrious history and high quality of judging.
